Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
Volume 3 Number 24 “Can You Imagine the Day Of No More Tears?!”
July 1, 2020
While there are in life times of great joy and gladness, let’s be honest with each other. Life is hard. Disappointments come. Plans fall through. People hurt our feelings. Headaches and heartaches occur. Loved ones die. Tears come. With that in mind, I want to share a little card with you today.
I always seek to be careful what I share from Karen’s Notes. She wrote things to herself that I know she would not want me to share. But this is something that I know she wouldn’t mind me passing along to you. I found this a few months ago as I was reading from her Bible. It’s a small postcard published by Warner Press in 1988. I gave it to her following the death of our little boy, Jeffrey.
Let me share the verse and then I will share the words written by Glenna Oldham.
“For the Lamb which in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes” (Revelation 7:17).
The card that Karen kept in her Bible:
“He Loves You”
You mean so much to me,
and I just wanted you to know
I love you…
And that Jesus loves you.
And is ever interceding…
Caring for your every need
And some day…
Some wonderful day,
He shall wipe away our tears.
Michael’s observation: Won’t that indeed simply be a miraculous and marvelous day! Later in the Book of the Revelation, John writes, “Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:3-4). Friends, life is hard. But eternity is coming. For those who know the Lord, what a grand day it will be when tears will be gone forever!
